Release day: Lord of the Abyss (Royal House of Shadows #4) by Nalini Singh

It’s release day for Nalini Singh’s Lord of the Abyss!

The fantastic fairy tale paranormal romance series from Harlequin Nocturne finally comes to a close

Lord of the Abyss is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but it reads more like Beauty and the Beast meets Cinderella meets the Ugly Duckling.  More than that, it is a survival story.  Liliana’s life has been one long collection of brutal and excruciating experiences no child should ever have to face.  Her past defines and shapes her in a way that nothing else can… an innocent forged in abuse, tempered in neglect, and quenched in self-sacrifice.  Her iron will shelters the heart of an innocent who never gave up hope, with the resolve to sacrifice whatever is necessary to see that evil destroyed.   She is a complex and intriguing heroine, hauntingly vulnerable yet determinedly strong and capable.

Micah, once called the Heart of Elden, is fierce and protective and fearless, sheilding his people from the nightmares of the Abyss he must constantly guard and patrol.  He is also tender and loyal and playful, a child who never had the chance to grow up callous or become jaded.  He is a rare innocent of a man who is demanding yet tender, a commanding and complex enigma of a hero whom only a master of her craft like Nalini Singh could make come to life so vividly and brilliantly.

Lord of the Abyss is innocently, darkly sexy, and is just as great a read on its own as it is as the final chapter in the smoldering, adventurous Royal House of Shadows series from Harlequin Nocturne.  Lord of the Abyss is a GraveTells Recommended Read!
